Bag of Randomness for Friday, September 14, 2018

  • Someone who shall not be named likes to dress up OtherDogGeedingII. It would be funny if either I or BoyGeeding could find a matching outfit.

No surprise, they reported yet another huge loss in the second quarter — $508 million, about twice as much as it lost a year earlier.
  • My place of employment has been avoiding this terminology for a while – ‘Master/Slave’ Terminology Was Removed from Python Programming Language

    One of Derrick’s coworkers is looking to buy a house. During a showing, when she asked a question about the master bedroom, the real estate agent took her aside and said that the term master bedroom isn’t used anymore because of its racist undertones.
